Skip to comments.A Culture of Torture: The Story of Mark Clements
Posted on 07/01/2010 1:56:47 PM PDT by pinstripes715
"Nigger boy, you gonna cooperate?" a 220lb. Chicago police officer screamed as he pounded on the chest of 16-year-old, 120lb. Mark Clements. As the beating continued, pain shot out from Clements' chest and exploded into the rest of his body. He gasped for air, struggling to breathe, in excruciating pain. Clements say the officer, whom he identifies as John McCann, had a way of getting his knuckles to the tenderest part of the bone.

Just think, if Clements had been in school like he was suppose to be, Pinstripes wouldn’t have gotten zotted.
Why zot a guy for posting a true story?
Unless I’m missing something big, I didn’t see anything zot-worthy about it.
Is there a particular reason you want the moderator to see this?
The Terrorist Communist Connection!
Clements was innocent and there was indeed a big torture scandal involving Chicago cops led by Jon Burge.
BUT - the point of this story is to work in some sort of praise for Ayer’s wife, the bomber-murderer Bernadine Dhorn, for connecting the victim with a law firm.
Since she and Ayers helped plan the recent flotilla attack on Israel, it looks like some positive spin is being fronted for them by the drooling dog media.
uh - thanks...
I think if this were done into word (MS Word that is) it would be 6-7 pages and Dohrn is mentioned for a paragraph about 70% of the way in, and you think the point of the story is to praise her? Really?
quite an eye for the telling small detail...
It is amazing what they want to see get on here just to snicker behind their comic books...
I want to say hi too
Since Jun 5, 2010
Why else does this story matter? And if Bernardine Dohrn is convinced of this man’s innocence, then he is guilty beyond any doubt at all.
It matters because the Burge trial is still ongoing. If not for Blago, it would be the big story in Chicago. The guy is innocent and no one disputes that at this point.
Look, if you are put off because of that paragraph that’s too bad.
which one of you did this? ‘fess up! LOL
from comments at article:
“Margaret Sanger / July 1, 2010 4:09 PM
What happened? Didn’t the community organizer Obozo, now Present (no ID) Obozo keep Chicago clean and safe?
Viking Kittehs Rule!”
Dohrn has a history of supporting obviously guilty murderers because her politics involved killing off whoever she felt was unimportant. Charles Manson and Black Panthers like Bobby Seale, Huey Newton, and Eldridge Cleaver were her heroes. Her claim that Clements is innocent is convincing evidence that he is guilty as hell.
Then there's this paragraph from the article at your link:
One day that summer he went to his aunt's home to play with his cousins. His aunt was also taking care of a foster child, Ramona Patton. Unbeknownst to Clements, Patton had spent time in juvenile detention for killing a playmate a few years earlier. Clements cousins were playing double dutch with Patton when he arrived at his aunt's home. As Clements watched, he noticed that some money dropped out of Patton's pocket. Clements, in an inconspicuous manner, stepped on the cash and put about $20 in his pocket. When Patton noticed the money missing, she accused everyone there including Clements. Patton screamed expletives and accusations mercilessly at the rest of the group but she was unable to get Clements to confess to his crimes. What Clements didn't know was that Patton would soon exact revenge.
Bullshit on every level. Patton committed a murder in the 1960s and somehow was let out before she reached majority age. Not likely. Clements is an admitted thief and liar according to his own story. But Patton decided to blame him for a quadruple murder even though she couldn't figure out who stole her money. And of course, the cops just piled on after a convicted murderer said that Clements did it. No need for an investigation or any of that stuff.
Clements' story is a load of crap. He'll probably end up with a clean record, and since he sounds like a total sociopath, he already has a clean conscience.
I read the whole article and found the BS meter going off on every level!
The corrupt in Chicago are so corrupt that they use each other as stepping stones to be the most corrupt!
